Subject [jira] [Updated] (MPIR-382) Group different license spellings together
Date Sun, 12 May 2019 19:14:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MPIR-382?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Vincent Privat updated MPIR-382:
--------------------------------
    Description: 
The licenses report is not aware of the different possible spellings we can find in all Maven
dependencies published on Maven Central. This results in any given license (for example, Apache
2.0) being listed several times. For example, take a look to the seven variants listed in
[maven-site-plugin dependencies|http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-site-plugin/dependencies.html#Licenses]:
 * Apache Public License 2.0
 * Apache License Version 2
 * Apache License, Version 2.0
 * Apache Software License - Version 2.0
 * Apache License 2.0
 * Apache License Version 2.0
 * The Apache Software License, Version 2.0

On a large project, this makes the license report unreadable. The plugin should detect all
these variants denote the same license and group them together.
